Fernando Torres hints at shock retirement U-turn as ex-Chelsea ace reveals he will announce next move with cryptic tweet

FERNANDO TORRES has dropped a major hint that he is considering a sensational return to football.

The former Chelsea and Liverpool striker hung up his boots in August 2019 after a stint with Japanese side Sagan Tosu.

El Nino would then take up a coaching role with Atletico's B team of last year before becoming their manager in January – a position he has temporarily stepped away from due to personal reasons.

Away from football, the 37-year-old went viral last year after piling on the muscle in a dramatic body transformation.

Now Torres could be putting his new-found figure to good use back on the football pitch judging by his latest social media post.

Posting an image of the iconic No9 shirt, he wrote the caption: "I only understand life in one way – playing. That's why I've decided to return."

Fans will need to wait for more information with Torres adding: "This Friday I will communicate where."

Torres retired with a record of 262 goals in 767 club appearances.

He also netted 38 times in 106 games for Spain, with whom he won the World Cup and European Championships twice.

He will be fondly remembered in England for his sensational time at Anfield where he scored 81 times in 142 games.

But his subsequent £50million transfer to Chelsea in 2011 was underwhelming as Torres scored just 42 goals in 172 matches at Stamford Bridge.

Although he will be fondly remembered for scoring in the Champions League semi-final against Barcelona before Chelsea went on to lift the trophy.

He then went on loan to AC Milan before returning to Atletico and then finishing his career with Sagan Tosu.

Torres retired with seven major trophies to his name although failed to win a league title.
